Audio distribution is a major growth area. Wiring for audio may appear to be
a reasonably simple matter, but providing flexibility into a building structure is no
easy matter, especially given the multitude of options available from manufacturers. If you want to take a staged approach where an initial "multi-zone/single source" set-up will eventually be expanded into "multi-zone/multi-source", the ability to replace wall mounted controls with centralised management features is an essential next step. To do so in a cost effective way relies on an existing, usable network infrastructure that will allow the transition.
So if the initial equipment is such that it invokes only a 'closed' proprietary option where only single brand products can be used, the potential problems associated with your selected brand could greatly compromise any expansion plans. ingenious can advise you the best way to go to maximise your future options as your lifestyle might change and technology develops and gives you different options. Depending on individual client requirements ingenious will also advise on growth areas like Media Centres being touted by Microsoft and various PC and consumer electronics companies.
